My wife is in town for work (which happens from time to time) and we get put up in Jersey City--weekend of Feb. 11, 2012. I have arranged for friends and family from in and out of town to meet and surprise her for her 50th birthday.
PROBLEM: Where do we fit 15 people from age 21 to 55 for drinks/beers/wine AND food that is not some awful Times Square tourist trap? Lots of favorite places are unable or unwilling to accommodate that many people on a Saturday evening.
We have a tentative "maybe" from Il Buco Vineria but I am still looking for a great place. We like food from all places and all levels, and will probably eat, drink, and be merry in one location, and then some of us will continue the celebration into the later hours elsewhere. We last ended up at Decibel for Sake and then cocktails at Little Branch, so we are game for good bars too. But the first locale has to be about food and beverage for that larger group.
Any and all help is welcome...
